Phil looks like he's somewhere else, and to be honest I don't blame him.



Jokes aside, I think it's cool to see these folks together for good cause.

I think we're all thinking about Spidey at this rate. All I'm doing is Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and Horizon right now, just waiting for Spidey. :P

Spidey won't reach 90 or more on meta.
Screenshot this
I think it will have forgettable story and meh characters and this will drag the score down

I think quite the opposite. I’ve watched a lot of interviews with the dev team and you can just tell how passionate they are and how they want to make sure they get it right. They often focus on how the best Spider-Man stories are the ones where Peter and Spider-Man’s worlds collide and that’s what they wanted to achieve here. I think that could potentially lead to a phenomenal story. Couple that with them creating a unique universe not tied to any movie or comic (like what the Arkham games did) and you have insane potential in this game.

Does Sony have anything planned for gamescom? Been super busy lately and out of the loop on almost everything.
They haven't had a press conference there after 2014. I don't think they will either. PGW has been their center for SIE WWS next to E3 in the west. Since 2015 Sony started to have four press conferences: E3, ChinaJoy, TGS and PGW. Don't ask me why 2016 was different and they did a press conference at PSX.

However, before people complained on too much indies Sony did treat PSX as the laid-back event with a keynote to announce indie games and some third party games. 2015 was when people set up their high expectations for first party announcements after a onslaught of first party announcements at E3, TGS and PGW. People wanted more so they got frustrated and disappointed after that keynote. 2015 was in my opinion better than 2016 as a whole. TGS has never been this excited for years so it was obvious it will go back to normal again in 2016 and 2017 with boring press conferences. TGS is either a hit or miss. It can never be stable for two years in a row.

Absolutely right. Check Easy Allies’ impression of the first 5 hours, in the last several minutes Brandon gave really high praise of the story and the character design.

Looks good! Shame since I just bought Ghost Recon in that sale, so trying to get all the value outta that as I can.

I think Spider-Man will be a GOTY contender alongside God of War and Red Dead Redemption, for sure. Think about it: this is gonna be the first Spider-Man game with a proper story, soundtrack, combat and some navigation that draws inspiration from Spider-Man 2. What's not to love from what we've seen so far? I expect something like 92.

I don't know what the meta will be, but forgettable story and meh characters is one thing I know we DON'T have.


I know it's kind of wrong for me to feel this way, but I'm a little offended that some people think the game will have a forgettable story and/or characters (I'm not actually letting it bother me, but there's that tiny little itch at the back of my head when I see comments like that) because everything I've read and seen about the game so far points to that not being the case. The more I read learn about the game, the more it's sounding like a dream come true for diehard Spider-Man fans. I've said it again and again, but it sounds like Insomniac truly understands the character, and that's not surprising considering how closely they're working with Marvel Games on this. With Spider-Man's recent homecoming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spencer and Ottley's (so far) fantastic new ASM book, and Marvel's Spider-Man, it feels like one of the best times ever to be a Spidey fan.
